It's bling love for Gwen Stefani on "Luxurious," the fifth and second-best single from Love.Angel.Music.Baby. Gwen draws parallels between decadent love and material possessions, and so does the music the Egyptian cotton reference weaves right into the sample of the Isley Brothers' "Between the Sheets." Yeah, it's that tune again (online rap-sample guide The-Breaks.com lists fifteen tracks founded on that song), but only Stefani can make sounding this insistent (fine: annoying) so sinfully good.
